Watson Brown Scholarship Program

Awards Available: 900

The primary mission of the Watson-Brown Foundation is providing need and merit-based scholarships to select Georgia and South Carolina students attending accredited four-year colleges and universities in the United States. The scholarships are renewable in the amount of $5000. More than 900 current and rising college students receive money from the Watson-Brown Foundation every year. The Watson-Brown scholarships are designed to fund students' academic goals from the first day of classes through graduation. Our founder, Walter J. Brown, believed college education provided the best avenue towards success and fulfillment. In 1970, he established a private Foundation to support that belief. The Watson-Brown Foundation scholarships are awarded to students from communities in and near the Savannah River valley where Brown was raised and spent the majority of his adult life.

Eligible students must be from one of the 18 counties listed below. A student's permanent address must be within the designated county region. Current high school seniors or current undergraduate students may apply for the scholarship. Students must plan to attend a 4 year, accredited, non-profit college.The Foundation recognizes colleges and universities accredited by one of the six regional accreditation agencies, such as SACS.
